Lessons from the Lunchlady: some call me dictator; others just leave off the tator

Considering this was a short week because of the President's Day holiday, it felt incredibly long. I learned a lot this week. Some of it good and some...not so good.

High school Asian chicken is a little spicy. This week were celebrating Hong Kong and our country meal of the week included an asian stir fry, rice and a fortune cookie. I tasted the sauce and was surprised by how spicy it was. Mind you I like spicy. My boss attempted to try it on a piece of chicken as she was sure it couldnt be THAT spicy. was.

It's hard to draw politically correct Asian rice. It's almost embarrasing the amount of thought I put into this dry erase drawing. I didn't want it to offend anyone. Of course, just as lunch is about to start one of the aides asks me why the rice bowl has a penis along the side of his head. Seriously? That's his headband bow. Ugh. And I was worried about his eyes.

The job is yours...if you dare. Turns out I worried needlessly about the LUNCHLADY TEST OF TORTURE. At the start of the 2012-2013 school year I will be the new head cook/manager. If this goes as well as my current PTO president stint, I'll have numerous people pissed by midSeptember.

The custodian asked if I was pregnant. Seriously? I haven't put on any significant weight lately so why he would say that boggles my mind. Is it wrong to admit to you that i contemplated his death?

Kid appropriate fortunes. Anyone know of a company that provides kid appropriate fortune cookies? A first grader got one this week that said "You will be recognized and honored as a community leader." um...maybe he could learn to tie his shoes first.

What did you learn this week?

So happy you got the new position, I'm sure you'll do great. Just remember to keep your sense of humor, that is always a plus.
Let's see, what did I learn? Ummmmm..... I guess I learned that it is possible for a dog to be a priss! Our little girl just doesn't like the wet yard we have right now and seems to hate walking on the wet grass, what a picky little girl she is!

Congrats on the job!

That aide has a very dirty mind. I don't see a penis even if I try. Congrats (I think?) on the job. I HAD a friend a long, long time ago whom I hadn't seen for a few years. We got together at a conference and I said excitedly, "I didn't know you were pregnant!" She's not my friend anymore. Lesson learned.
